Hello :D 

your setup is actually quite good,

have you considered an AMD cpu? you can pick a quad core phenom II 3.4ghz on amazon for just under 100$ and that includes a heatsink

I dont know too much about the mobo but I have an asus M5A97 I got it almost brand new off amazon for about 75$ it comes with quite a few intresting features as well along with support for crossfirex.

as for RAM the best deal I found for 8gb is

hope this helps :D

actually, I would recommend a hyper 212 evo over the plus version, because it has some newer features to it
